Creating or taking over a business requires a substantial financial investment from the project owner in order to create or acquire the desired company or business. This approach is generally prepared by a stage of reorganization and rationalization of the personal finances of the future entrepreneur.

How can credit consolidation help a buyer?

credit consolidation

This allows him, on the one hand to improve his borrowing capacity for future financial operations, on the other hand to prepare relations with his future financial partners since the management of his personal finances and those of his future company will be strongly linked. To simplify and optimize its financial situation, the entrepreneur can choose to consolidate his personal credits in order to free up his investment capacities in his future company.

When a creator or a buyer decides to embark on a new professional project, he expects to have to pay attention to his personal expenses during the launch of his new activity. In general, the latter is engaged in several credits of different kinds that squeeze its debt capacity. The renegotiation of personal credits can facilitate the recovery process in a number of ways.

  • On the one hand, pooling loans improves the personal finances of the future manager by lengthening the duration of the loans and reducing the monthly payments. The latter can thus reduce his monthly expenses and ease the constraints related to his monthly expenses at a time when his leisure time and free time allow him to evacuate the tension and stress of his new professional life.
  • On the other hand, the amount of grants, subsidies and guarantees given to the manager to assist him in the implementation of his project is linked to the manager’s personal investment capacity. Reducing the amount of monthly payments frees up its investment capacity. By using jointly the increase of its investment capacity, the external aids (subsidies, loan with zero rate, …) and the financial leverage effect, the entrepreneur can optimize significantly his budget of creation or recovery. He can better work on his project or acquire a company in good financial health and reduce the risks related to his project.
  • Finally, the simplification and rationalization of the manager’s indebtedness facilitates the granting of professional loans. Although the personal finances of the leader and those of his company are independent, the financial partners will not fail, when they are asked, to condition the aid requested to the personal situation of the leader. This is done for example on the analysis of its debt ratio, or for a request for a deposit.

Consolidation of credits is a proactive approach that allows entrepreneurs to prepare to financially support their project rather than suffer the situation.
